I never had a need for one. But I ride smooth water all the time. On a SD SCer set up I don't see how useful it is anyway. If I had a turbo or a Yami with a SCer, I would have one.

i just pulled my diaphragm from the filter on my riva pro BOV. it blew out and this is supposed to be the top one, at least from riva. i've got 60 hours on my charger clutch and just measured all the parts with a micrometer and there is simply no wear at all, even with the slip at 15NM. the BOVs are supposed to save your clutch which i believe is exactly what it did. unfortunately they also come with their own problems like a leaking seal or blown out diaphragm. so i suggest if anyone is going to get one out there to get a strong aftermarket bov and you will prolong the life of your clutch

Am not running one.
Got an orig one from the Riva setup if any one wants to make an offer for it tho.
I figured the engine rpm is almost directly connected to the boost, so the pressure would drop accordingly. I can't see that it is needed to stop the charger either stalling, or running-on causing damage to it.

If your looking for a boost leak in the near future... install a BOV. That's all there good for
